White Burgundy quality from California. At a fraction of the cost.

Deep gold with apple, pear, honey, pineapple with some oak and smoke on the nose. Medium to full body with a fresh acidity that is balanced by the subtle tannins. Buttery but not overly so with apple, poached pear, peaches in cream, kiwi and pineapple with some notes earthy oakiness. Peaches linger in the hot medium long finish.
Paired with southwestern grilled tuna, which worked great!

Light straw color. Muted citrus upfront with a buttery oak middle and finish. Creamy. At West Central Wine dinner.
